"Points" From a Kansas City MO Traffic Ticket - starting at $35


The state of Missouri uses a “points system” to track traffic infractions.  Basically, each infraction is assigned a certain number of points.  The worse the offense, the more points that will be assessed.  For example, a straightforward Kansas City MO speeding ticket will net you approximately two (2) points.


These points are put directly onto your permanent driving record.  The more points you accrue, the more you look like a bad driver.  And once points become a part of your record, your automobile insurance provider will jack up your rates through the roof!!  Even a simple two points speeding ticket can result in an increase by about 35% to your monthly premiums.  This can obviously have a damaging effect to your household budget.


So how do you avoid this kind of outcome?  First of all, you should not plead guilty to the traffic ticket.  A lot of people do this without knowing the consequences (or that they are in fact pleading guilty at all).  All you have to do in order to plead guilty to the Kansas City MO traffic ticket is pay the associated fine that is listed on the back of the citation.  That’s literally all you have to do.  And you can expect the points to come rolling in thereafter.

And if you continue to allow the points to accumulate on your driving record, the end result can be disastrous!!  Because this can easily lead to a full suspension of your driving privileges.  And if your license is suspended because of too many points (especially if incurred within a short period of time), your driving privileges will be stripped for a full year!  And don’t even think about getting caught driving on a suspended license, because that will result in a misdemeanor charge (although we can certainly help with this too!!)

But we have a much different approach in mind!  Our team would rather you not receive any points to your driving record!!  The way we do this is by working out a deal with the local prosecutor in which we get the speeding ticket (which is described by the state of Missouri as a “moving violation”) reduced down to a non-moving violation.  A non-moving violation does not come with any points to your record.  If there are no points on your record, your auto insurance will remain the same!  That’s all there is to it!

So give us a call (or shoot us a text, send us an email, or fill out an online form)!  We will answer all your questions, thoroughly describe how the process works from start to finish, and get you back out on the road safely!
